I have a 2017 Silverado High Country with the DL3 mirrors and seat memory.  With the help of @Pgamboa I purchased the 1AMPR01786 full function Towing Mirrors.  He made me new door harnesses and provided the upgrade needed to turn the towing mirrors into the full functions of the DL3 mirrors.  I followed his excellent video and the installation of the new mirrors went off without a hitch.  The new towing mirrors have all the functions of the old DL3's but the view is so much better.  And now it will be a lot easier for towing my 26' car hauler. Here are some photos of the finished product.

Are you happy with the quality of the mirrors themselves?  I am torn between the OEM and less expensive aftermarkets.

Earlier this year I installed 1AMRP01771 mirrors on my 2017  Silverado with Phil's harnesses.

I am very pleased with the mirrors; the only complaint I have is I get a slight whistle while driving down the road that is not present when the mirrors are folded.  I think the whistle is coming from where the forward part of the running light lens meets the front mirror plastic.  I cannot hear it with windows up, only with windows down, and it is little more than an annoyance that I think a clear piece of packing tape can fix.

For saving more than $500 compared to installing factory DQS mirrors, I can live with a bit of wind noise.

I am very happy with the mirrors so far.  I have been out on I-95 and didn't hear any unusual noises.  The view out of theses mirrors is great.  Lots of mirror to see whats going on.

Yes.

Lead times for harnesses is about 3-4 weeks. I am taking some much needed time off next month (6/6 - 6/17). So that will factor into extended lead times.

Hope this helps. I can send you ordering instructions if you want hold your spot in the build queue. I will be building/shipping items as soon as I’m able to, in the order payment came in. I will stop building/shipping on 6/5 and will resume where I left off when I return.

Send me a PM with more details on the needs.

Hi Paul,

 

Lots of incredible information here. Thank you.

 

I have a 2015 Sierra All Terrain with DL3 mirrors and want to upgrade to DQS.

 

I do not have A45.

 

I would like to add the autofold with fob if possible.

 

I wish to go the DIY route.

 

Thanks

Jason

PM me. You won’t be able to add Factory Key Fob Fold since it is dependent of the A45 Seat Memory System. We’ll also have to validate your cabin side connector since your truck is 2015.

Yesterday I swapped my D8 s for D3s using Phil’s harness and his you tube video. It was a breeze and worked perfectly.

      so i have a 2003 sierra and the signal and defrost went out of the passenger mirror, so i bought a new glass and the signal didnt work, so i returned the mirror and got to looking into a whole new mirror. i looked at my build sheet and it says i have power folding mirrors, which i didnt know ! i bought the truck used. once i recognized this i tried to fold them in and it didnt work. the production code in the glove box says i have DL3 mirrors. so after all this i just want to know if i have power folding mirrors and maybe there broken? any thoughts or advice and maybe the best place to get new mirrors or mirror
       
      thanks

      Hello Everyone,

      I wanted to start this thread as a continuation from my DL8 to DL3 Mirror Conversion here.

      http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/190736-2016-silverado-lt-dl8-to-dl3-mirror-conversion-finally-complete-3/page-1

      Based on the 6 months of research in the above thread, feedback from many of the members here, and observing behavior of other member's experience...


      I am now able to officially offer a Plug and Play Harness Solution for those that want to upgrade their Standard DL8 Mirrors to the DL3 Mirrors on their 2014* - 2017 Silverado/Sierra Trucks (LT/SLE Trims).

      DL8 Mirrors - Power Adjust, Manual Fold, and Heated
      DL3 Mirrors - Power Adjust, Power Fold, Heated, Auto Dim (Driver's Side), Turn Signal and Puddle Lamps

      This has been tested on the following models:

      2014* - Silverado/Sierra LT/SLE - 1500* (Known issue with Puddle Lamps - Diode mod workaround required)

      2015 - 2017 Silverado/Sierra LT/SLE

      Please see Vehicle Acceptability for Retrofit Document Here. Keep in mind that this document is intended for Towing Mirrors, but based on feedback, they seem to follow similar acceptability requirements.

      https://www.dropbox.com/s/q4eldhgg2x8i10q/Camper%20Mirrors%20-%2023371780.pdf?dl=0

      There might be additional wiring needed for other trucks. If you decide to purchase the harness anyway, I can assist as much as I can. However, there is no guarantee that it'll work without BCM/Memory Module Calibration (and if that's even possible), or additional wiring for missing circuits in the inline door hinge connector. Also, if you are outside of the compatibility requirements, I would need some additional information/photos of your truck connectors to determine if this harness will work or not.

      The Plug and Play Harness will be pinned for the following functionality.

      Turn Signal
      Puddle Lamps
      Power Fold***
      Auto Dim (Driver's Side)****

      ***For Power Fold, you will need a new Mirror Adjust/Power Fold Switch - Part # 23154702.

      ****For Auto Dim (Driver's Side) - You will need to add a Auto Dim Rear View Mirror AND run the additional (4) Circuits needed to the X51L Fuse Panel and X61A Junction Box. Please see thread here for details.

      http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/192050-a10-inside-rearview-auto-dimming-mirror-conversion-dd8/?hl=a10+mirror

      The Harness Set for both Driver and Passenger is $225 Shipped (lower 48) via PayPal (as Family and Friends). I ship USPS Priority Mail 2-3 Day Shipping. Once you receive the Harnesses, Install, Test, and Confirm all is operational, you have the option of shipping me your Stock DL8 Harness for a $40 Core Refund.
